dear chaitanya veetraga,
That is : from oneself.
Otherwise one goes round and round in circles.
Because the known can never be the door for the unknown.
And the known is the mind.
So mind becomes the barrier.
Look attentively at this fact.
Be alert of the vicious circles of the mind.
And, then there is transcendence.
The known must be rare for unknown to be.
The known must go for the unknown to come in.
And this creation of the known is meditation.
